Brian Hewson has been working in the sound and recording industry for  over thirty five years. Back in the early 70's he was a Bass player then guitar player in a few  local Georgetown Bands .He had a keen interest in music and equipment so in 1977 he enrolled in the Media Arts program at Sheridan College in Oakville Ontario to study recording and film . During the 3 year course he had a chance to do many recordings and worked with some up and coming stars such as Rick Santers and Platinum Blonde.

After graduation he began working at Soundpath Productions in Oakville. First as an assistant , then as an engineer .It was here that he worked on some great projects such as Triumphs "Stages" album , the Spoons "listen to the city "album, demos by Lee Aaron , Tim Thorney, Joel Feeney , Lisa Dalbello and many others . As well as hundreds of commercials and film soundtracks.
While still at Soundpath he began teaching part time at Sheridan College teaching the 3rd year Audio and Recording course, a position which he held for 14 years. During this time he was doing freelance engineering with artists like, The Mercy Brothers, Jeff Bird and Double Exposure. Also at this time he held a job doing live sound at a club on Queen street in Toronto. In 1986 he built a small but efficient studio in Acton ON and called it "Escarpment Sound Studio" because of the Niagara Escarpment which runs through the area.

For five years he worked out of this small but productive 16 track studio doing demo's, commercials and albums including 3 "Stompin Tom Connors" projects  and all of the Olde Hide House , "worth the drive to Acton" commercials. Then in 1990 he purchased a 23 acre farm north of Acton that had a stone foundation he knew would be perfect for the larger studio that he wanted to build.

Work was completed in 1991 and the new "Escarpment Sound Studio (2)" was born. This studio was used for over 20 years putting out hundreds of high quality projects, including 7 more Stompin Tom CD's . Also during this time he taught at The Metal Works Institute part Time .
Then in the summer of 2012 Escarpment Sound joined together with Ignition  Sound studios on a 50 acre farm in Belwood ,near Fergus . Together they  combined their equipment and talents to make an amazing studio "Escarpment Sound (3)", which  has a full kitchen and over night accommodations. 
This is where Brian is now recording, playing and Producing.
